International Welcome Week

Our International Welcome Week (IWW) for new international students is held each September and January, just before the start of term, so that whenever you arrive you will have a warm welcome.

The programme gives you the opportunity to get to know the campus and the city, and to meet staff and other new students. The programme is free – you only pay for your accommodation for the additional week that you are here.

The welcome programme will provide you with information about being a student in the UK as well as giving you the opportunity to meet other students. There will also be sessions to give advice and guidance over important issues such as health services, opening a UK bank account and getting part-time work. There are social events and trips to help you to make new friends. The programme is free, but you may need to pay a small fee for some events.
